    Who Is This Woman?

    Today during juryo, Enho was standing next to the dohyo with her directly behind him in the camera shot. She pulls out her phone and looks at really quickly, so she is human after all.

    Day 6 Mitakeumi: I was able to do my own brand of sumo today. I gambarized properly, so my content was forwarder than my opponent. (Don't worry Moti-san, I won't be quitting my day job)

    Hatsu 2022 rikishi talk

    Thanks Moti, that made me smile. Afterwards as Ishiura was heading back on the hanamichi, he got a fist bump from Magaki (doing security). I guess a win will be a win (however it happens) in the Magaki heya.

    FORWARDER! (it's more forward)

    Yeah, it sounds like coconuts being banged together, it always makes me cringe. I would be surprised if there was a forced protocol, like most other sports (where continuing to play is a doctors decision, not the player's or coach's decision). At least the head shimpan called attention to it and had someone hold onto Ura to lead him off the dohyo (I guess you call that progress in a sport where there doesn't seem to be any "real" medical personnel standing by in case of an emergency).

    I was wondering whether that was "out of wind" or after effects of a concussion. I am hoping "out of wind", but he didn't look "all there". I am guessing the kyokai's concussion protocol (or lack thereof) is not like other sports where you have mandatory time off when suffering one. He may not have shown any true concussion signs after the bout (or he may not have been checked). I was on the receiving end of one playing ice hockey a long time ago, I felt the effects for weeks.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Chiyotairu just found out the meaning of "let sleeping bears lie". Giving Toshinoshin a harite only made him mad (the return harite by 'shin was no joke).
  8. Two very deep (space) comments from Jakusotsu today I am thankful that Black Friday in Japan will never turn into Flash Mob Friday like it has in the US.

    Has a sumo wrestler ever been to space?

    Gagamaru goes from an ozeki run to a moonwalk Swami-san, I forgot about Roho, Hakurozan, and Wakanoho.

    Who Is This Woman?

    So you are saying the tamariseki fairy doesn't fly and hover onto her position? Man, am I disappointed. (I don't understand the fixation people have with her, I hope all the weird attention doesn't turn her into the hikikomori fairy).

    Henkashoma, what way to start a basho. Chiyotaikai/Kokonoe must be so proud.

    Has a sumo wrestler ever been to space?

    If I had to guess, I would say Takaganja has been the closest to space

    Hakuho retires

    Oh come on Moti-san, tell us how you really feel (most of us are adults) I thought you were going fishing? Take a break, relax, (don't bait the hook, the fish will bother you). Don't worry it will only be a couple of weeks before he says something the NSK doesn't like (he can't help himself)

    Hakuho retires

    Ooh, nice kachiage at the tachiai and dame-oshi after the bout His numbers are big, but he hasn't always had the most competition at the top of the ranks (not his fault). It's not like the oldzeki's, the ozeki back scratcher's club, and the current crop of sanyaku were all that much competition. Only Asashoryu, Harumafuji, Kisenosato, and Terunofuji have given him real competition (and Toshinoshin when he was genki).

    Well, I can't argue with not having to translate Endo (I wonder if he is more interesting off camera or always like that). Does the gypsy cook? How was fishing? Did you do it properly or did you gambarize your own brand of fishing? You know they say a bad day fishing beats a good day translating boring a$$ comments. You have 6 weeks (or so) to recover from that last snooze fest, stay well my friend

    Aki talk

    I don't get much done as it is during the basho. I'd just be watching his videos for my snark fix. I already watch the matches twice almost every day (live on NHK and then a recorded replay with my wife when she gets home). Maybe someone can make a snark digest of his video digest

    Aki talk

    Moti-san, are you farming out the writing on these things now? If so, break down, spend a little money, hire someone who has a sense of humor (or start writing them yourself again) I know it was a drab, boring basho without much material to work from, but we are used to higher standards (of low brow humor) Sorry for the rant, and thanks for all you do to properly make it a little more interesting.
  19. Thank you for that Katooshu. Being Mr Anti-Henka I was yelling at my TV (yeah again), and ready to post something about henkabayama. But then I figured it was payback, carry on kiribayama
  20. Ahhhh Henkashoma That's one way to get one win in a basho. Takayasu's head was even up, I guess either his eyes were closed or has very limited mobility at the moment.

    There is also a new "one". "I am glad the test result was negative"

    Ha ha, no worries. I had found that and thought, nah can't be. I also found a lot of references to an anime series (not really a fan of anime), and thought, nope not it either. Thanks for the update!

    I realize that, the top of day 1 states "Whenever I feel like it..." But we want MORE! I also realize it's nearly impossible to make an extremely boring sumo interview reply sound interesting (thanks for trying). I'm coming up short on the wonderful mrs meisei googles, is he even married?

    What am I missing with the Wonderful Mr Meisei thing.... Here's a cliche for you, anything worth doing is worth doing properly (ya missed a day)

    Will they be garlic tako tacos? Those are the best kind (especially in san diego)
